Well I was putting my motor back together today and i snapped a bolt on one of the spring bolts. It is also now stripped my ? is would it be ok to have 4 out of 5 springs and bolts in? Im sure no is gonna be the answer but i figured i'd ask. Im lookin to find another one to buy btw this is the part just in case anyone has one from a 929 or 954 http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j160/grnreaper01/929clutchspringret.jpg

That's the clutch hub.
Only way to answer your question is to try it but I doubt it'd work well enough to be able to launch the bike.
Have you considered putting a thread insert in?

what do you mean by thread insert? re threading it with a larger bolt? if so my friend said her has a dye set and could re thread it. it's just a pain gettin the large bolt that holds the basket assembly on. my bud that owns the local bike shop has done it for me a few times but i hate keeping asking him. any ideas to do it?

I meant an insert like a Helicoil but tapping all of them to M8 bolts might be a better idea as it wouldn't alter the balance.
What is so hard about the nut?
Just hold the rear brake on with it in gear.
